Which is a better ECAnswered
Would starting a blog that deals with finance and economics be good or
Create trading algorithms that screen for stocks and automates trading
Earn karma by helping others:
I think the one that is harder to do and the one that is unique will do. I think creating a trading algorithms is more effective, because quality is very very important to get noticed by admission officers. Make sure that you do a project that is unique and stands out.
One isn’t inherently better than the other. I don’t know what year you are, but it sounds like ur just starting. If that’s the case, I’d recommend trying both because you might realize you’re more n interested in one only after you’ve tried both.
A lot of the time, colleges don’t necessarily care about what you call the extracurricular as long as you write about it passionately and demonstrate your motivation and connection etc.
Both sound like great choices! Keep in mind that you may also want to do multiple extracurriculars to be more competitive.
I hope this helps
The one that is more unique would be more beneficial. I think you should go with a blog that is unique, since trading algorithms are already commonly made (there are many tutorials and GitHub repos for this), unless you make a unique trading algorithm or a successful one. Otherwise a blog would be the better option since it has more potential to be unique and impressive. But just go with what you feel is enjoyable, probably that will give you the most success.
